When seconds count

Sources close to the investigation said that at about 3:30 a.m. police patrolling the Kings Farm neighborhood saw a suspicious car enter the community. Soon after, three men entered an apartment at Elmcroft Boulevard and Marsh Hollow Place and multiple shots were fired.
Two people were bound, shot, and stabbed not long after the police saw the suspicious vehicle. Whether the car contained the three scumbags or not is not relevant to me. What I think is relevant is that the police were already close by when the scumbags entered the community and took the time to tie the victims up, and then shoot and stab them.

Unless the police are sitting right next to you, and sometimes not even then, then the responsibility for your personal safety is your own. Maryland doesn't get that yet.
